Jokanović Nominated

Thursday 9 March 2017 06:00

Slaviša Jokanović has been nominated for February's Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award.

Fulham won four of their six league games last month, whilst also claiming a draw at in-form Cardiff City, to give them 13 points and move up to seventh in the standings.

We won two matches at home and two away, with 2-0 successes at both Burton Albion and Bristol City coming either side of consecutive 3-2 home victories against Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest.

It is the second time this season that Jokanović has been nominated, as his achievements were also recognised after he led the Whites to an unbeaten December.

He’s up against Rafael Benitez, manager of Saturday’s opponents Newcastle United, Preston North End’s Simon Grayson, and David Wagner of Huddersfield Town.

The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman, EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.

The winner will be announced on Friday morning.
